RA War Memorial inspires Stone Heart

#1
I was listening to R4 this morning as Charlie Fletcher, the author of the new childrens book Stone Heart, was interviewed giving his inspiration as the Royal Artillery Memorial at Hyde Park corner ( or more specifically the statue of the driver thereon). It sounded rather gripping.

The Telegraph interview is here:

It sounds fairly dark in places, almost Pullman like, so it could be a good cross-over read. It is planned to be a trilogy, and Paramount have bought the film rights already!
